Every Kid in a Park

We are proud to host the Every Kid in a Park program, as part of President Obama’s commitment to protect our nation’s unique outdoor spaces and ensure that every American has the opportunity to visit and enjoy them.

Now, fourth graders across Georgia and nationwide can visit the Every Kid in a Park website to print a pass that provides free access to students and their families to all federally managed lands and waters – including national forests, grasslands, wildlife refuges and waters. The pass is valid for the 2016-2017 school year and grants free entry for fourth graders and three accompanying adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks) at more than 2,000 federally-managed sites. 

Many sites on the Chattahoochee and Oconee National Forest don't require a fee at all. However, there are some fee locations where these passes will benefit you:
